institutionalizes the pork. >> it is like saying responsible alcoholism. it lubricates corruption . massive spending bills and obama care and the like. the only time we should have that kind of pork stuff is pass the flat tax otherwise ban them. >> rick, you had a piece a couple of months ago saying congress cannot operate without earmarks. >> it is interesting. i got on to a piece after a conversation with jack who got me think being it. before the moratorium went into affect. we had a much easier time getting things through congress. 15 billion before the moratorium on earmarks and it got people to vote for bimings. is it unpleasant? it kind of is. but steve said it is lubrication. >> emac, there is another thing. the kind of thing despite the law still on the hurricane sandy bill had pork in there. >> it is right . that doesn't equate thary - mark band has anything to do with grid lock. but the time and again. congress does the drink country gets the hang over. when they don't exert budgetary displinn. i don't see it. you can see in the appropriation's bills a lot pork spending. >> i will nolt sa
are on food stamps and the number that we spend on food stamps tripled under obama's watch? >> look, i agree with you. there is no recovery that we can measure here and you can point to how many people are out of work and lost their homes and on food stamps. we need to change our policy and invest and then you cash in. that's the way it works. we need to invest in america first. china is doing it. china's unemployment is 4.9 percent . ours is double that . china is investing with us. the money we pay to borrow for war. >> tracey. >> i believe we should invest but i don't want the government to do it. unemployment is up because of the uncertainty out of washington. companies don't want to expand. get the government out of the way, everything will get back to normal. >> tracey is right. you could see a temporarily sell off in the stock market. it is down from all-time highs because the market knows more medocre, the government will step in and fix and form the law interest rates and food stamps and unemployment checks. the market cheer its on >> free money. >> leave it there and say thank you
'm going to text it to him every time he says about the government spending under obama. >> you do have his personal cell, don't you? >> stephanie: i do. text him this graph because i think we played a clip yesterday where -- the president is spending -- the president is spending -- >> that's a lie. >> stephanie: that's the way it sounds in my head. does he say it differently? >> a little bit. with a long island accent. >> stephanie: anyway. as you can see under bush, it was very high. under p.o.t.u.s., at a low. we talked about this graph before. government at an all-time low. exhaustedly, we've said on the program. putting the two wars on the show. medicaid part b, it is now obama's spending -- all right. oh, look, it is future husband stack. [ ♪ "world news tonight" ♪ ] i need someone that cares about me. >> well apparently you have -- >> stephanie: i'm gesturing at jim. he doesn't know because he doesn't pay attention to me. >> because i'm trying to read e-mail. >> during the show? >> stephanie: i'm talking. reading while i'm talking. you're not paying attention are you? >> why do y
spending removed. president obama will sign it as soon as it crosses his desk. the taxes on the wealthy expected to bring in $80 billion. it is $60 billion in new spending which cancels out all of that chunk of extra revenue coming in from higher taxes. more proof that congress simply does not understand the need to rein in spending. cheryl sandberg, she says as women become more successful, critics become more negative about them. she also says that as women continue to climb the ladder, they have major disadvantages against men. "women still have two jobs in the most developed countries around the world. men have one." she is referring to raising a family. let's bring in ms. schaefer. are you generally in sympathy with cheryl? it is tough being a woman. hard to get to the top. >> i appreciate her directness. she has famously said women need to take a seat at the table, learn to negotiate, do not leave work too early. we have to be realistic about women and what they balance. it was a fair conversation to have. stuart: i agree with you. it is a fair statement of reality. we had a big f
. for starters. >> for sure. >> if president obama said that to speaker boehner that we don't have a spending problem, even his own debt commission says, even after the economy recovers, federal spending is projected to increase faster than revenues, so the government will have to continue to borrow money to spend. that sounds like a spending problem. that may be a revenue problem, but we can i. dprelta, we have doubled spending in the last 10 years and revenue this is year will be at historic highs. you don't have to guess where the problem is. we are spending too much. we need to cut spending in a predictable way so we don't shake up the economy. the fact is, there have been no defense spending cuts yet -- >> not yet. >> and so for them to blame the -- the negative growth on that is certainly -- was a part of it as defense contractors began to pull back. but this started last summer. businesses all over the country beginning to pare back their plans. >> the insanity that nobody knew what their taxes were going to be. >> sure. >> this is the thing that i -- for the life of me, i can't unders
that president obama told him we don't have a spending problem. really? former senator jim demint is here. if we have no spending problem, senator, why do we need to extend the debt ceiling? why do we need more money? >> greta, the president is running out of excuses. he can't blame the last administration because he is the last administration. president obama has spent more and created more debt than any president in history. yeast, we have the slowest recovery of any recovery in history. i spent last summer, going around my state, talking to small businesses, dozens of them. so it's very clear to me what's happening now. they were beginning to pull back because of the expected cost of obamacare, the dod-frank legislation, that was a federal takeover of our financial system is making it harder for businesses to get loans. you look at the expected tax increases, which businesses were trying to plan for, the uncertainty really goes back to the president's policies. it is not obstruction. i wish we had had more of it. the policies in place are hurting our economy. and even more than that, the unce
to increase automatically. president obama wants to spend more on education. that's tough. so these cuts go into effect, but they might find very quickly that it's very difficult to actually implement them. >> last thing here to you, chris, we're hearing about a couple of senators not going to be -- not going to seek re-election. talking about harkin, saxby chambliss. chambliss cited the gridlock in washington as part of the reason him wanting to step away. get your reaction to both of these men not seeking re-election. and also what are your thoughts on chambliss actually citing what's happening in washington as part of the reason for him wanting to get out of there? >> i think what we're seeing right now is a generational change in washington. chambliss and harkin and guys like that are part of that change. and it's interesting particularly in chambliss's case as you point out he does cite the partisan gridlock. but he's also part of that old republican guard. he's very close friends with house speaker john boehner for example. i think you're going to see as the republican party changes s
. secretary lahood if you could thank president obama from all of us. yes. [applause] because i know today we're going to spend a lot of precious moments thanking leader pelosi and congress women fine 79 and boxer and. >> >> we're going to thank all of our community members and from china town and all of them have worked very hard. these are not easy projects. they're very complicated and people had to work at the highest levels to make sure that every aspect worked, and a person who has worked tirelessly for 20 years and we join in celebrating 25 years of being in our congress and sought at every stage to make sure these funds were projected, to make sure we're doing our part, that congress is doing their part, all of the federal agencies, the person that first called me to share the news we're out of the white house and into the congress and wait our magical 60 to 90 days and lees give a warm welcome leader nancy pelosi. [applause] >> who is also keeping track on the giants. >> you know mr. mayor i always listen attentively to every world you say but i know you want me to say it's the bot
about putting someone in a deposition, the republicans allowing obama to be obama and the in the senate to continue to spend than to rack up these insane deficits and debt and go to the 26 -- the 2014 elections we think? >> well, there is no grand strategy. instead they are engaging in skirmishes they cannot win. lou: response to what i suggest that they do. we know the history. that is one of the reasons you're suggesting a different approach. >> i happen to agree with you. nothing that's abroad when look at things. creating enough small ads, small discussions with the american public to make it work, but they have to be very disciplined and do it. the problem, they have multiple taxes. shooting at the leaders command is very difficult. a very difficult position. lou: in a overcome the leaders? >> other people coming at them? i think that leaders worked their way up the system. newt gingrich as an example. over a decade, building the party committing candidates elected committed not just come in one day -- lou: he was the savior and he blew the party up in '96. he is probably the worst
than words, mr. president. president obama may talk about the need to rein in spending, although lately he has even rejected that, but his administration refuses to act, and instead the president started off hisec t doubling dn on what? the nee for mor taxes are the american people bei taxed toea? itotust the federal income tax. it's the ste tax a to it thealax it's the excise tax. it's the car tax. it's the alcohol tax. it is the excise tax. it is the tolls we pay as we travel down the highways. it is any number of things that add up to a burden of taxation on the american people that is severely hampering our ability to grow and our economy to provide the necessary employment and the necessary jobs for people so desperately in need of and looking for that work. while the president has problems community has. a recent survey of chief executives said they are considerably less optimistic about short-term growth prospects for their companies than they were just a year ago. the reason? uncertainty. the business community does not have confidence in the growth prospects for our country bec
't really spend on campaigning in those areas. last fall you cannot turn on the tv in virginia without seeing ads. especially when the -- especially when the obama ads were better than the romney ads. it was weird when you go to visit people in new york or los angeles. they are not actually experiencing the campaign. if you went to a congressional district, then you would go fight in california, because republicans could win 20 out the hobbi54. i'm normally reluctant to tamper with these long standing institutions and practices, but there might be case in this instance for at least. thinking least. host: your comments on speaker boehner, a first one to go to danny joining us on the democratic line. good morning. caller: hello. you put harry reid on the cover. if you look up the words chicken hawk and neocon, there's a picture of bill kristol. the only people who were surprised that president obama won the election were fox news viewers. host: thanks for the call. guest: i was not surprised. i thought romney had a chance, and he was all a little short at the end. if the viewer does not
obama did say to speaker boehner that we don't have a spending problem, even on the debt commission even after the economy recovering, federal spending is projected to increase faster than revenues so the government will continue to borrow money to spend. that sounds like a spending problem? >> we have doubled spending in the last ten years. revenues this year will be historic highs. so you don't have to guess where the problem is. we are spending too much. we need to cut spending. we need to do it in a predict way so we don't shake up the economy. the fact there has been no defense spending cuts yet. >> greta: not yet. >> so for them to blame the negative growth on that was certainly part of that as defense contractors begin to pull back. this started last summer. businesses all over the country beginning to pare back their plans end of last year, to all the policies that president obama put in place. >> greta: i think it's the insanity that was going on. the fact that nobody knew what his or her taxes were going to be. it wasn't as though -- for the life of me i can't understand how pe
to suspend the debt ceiling but the spending sequester cuts are still set to kick in on march 1st and i hope they do. now house speaker john boehner says president obama is out to annihilate the republican party. we'll talk about all that with new hampshire senator kelly ayotte and our political panel in just a few moments. >> also, big time golfers phil mickelson, tiger woods, lebron james and derek jeter are all supply siders. we'll explain that later this hour. >> i wasn't involved in the talking points process. as i understand it, as i've been told, it was a typical interagency process where staff, including from the state department all participated to try to come up with whatever was going to be made publicly available. >> that of course was secretary of state clinton today on capitol hill saying she had no role in susan rice's false talking points on the benghazi consulate attack. but will we ever find out why ambassador rice denied the terrorist attack and misled the public saying this on "meet the press." >> what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to w
with the fiscal cliff deal. they're hoping to extract spending cuts from president obama. if not that fight, then in the next debt ceiling fight the next debt ceiling fight. the demand nor spending cuts isn't going to go anywhere. >> bill: barney frank, he would be fired up, ready to go. he knows she is issues. he knows the fiscal issues better than anybody else. >> deval patrick said he would be happy to have him. he didn't endorse it per se but he expressed sort of opens to the idea. >> wouldn't be a big learning curve for barney. >> bill: no, not at all. i think it would be very tough for governor patrick not to appoint him. i mean who else could step in and have all of the information and all of the experience you need to really fight for the people. >> i was going to say -- >> bill: now, of course, so is it is sort of a relief the fiscal issues are out of the way and we can talk about something else like maybe immigration reform. very unusual to see these days eight senators, four from each party, agree on anything, correct? >> it is. >> bill: you cover the congress. you're there. >> i
: president obama does acknowledge medicare problems, even though we don't have a spending problem. this goes beyond a fiscal thing. i mean, this is real -- liz: that's right charles. the doctors are telling me it is totally opposite of what the president said he wanted, more care under health reform. this is actually rewarding for less care. stuart: this new just in on the rimm meeting. they are going to change their corporate name to blackberry. we all know they put out the blackberry and that's the name of the company, none of this research in motion stuff. okay? the stock though they are listening to very carefully with what's going on with the new blackberry 10. seems so far they like what they are hearing. look at the big board, down 24 points for the dow. that's not a very big reaction to the news this morning that our economy is contracting, at least it did at the very end of last year. maybe everybody's waiting for the 2:15 announcement of what bernanke is going to do with all that money printing in the future. maybe that's why the market -- i think you will agree with this -- that's
reported that -- a few weeks ago president obama reportedly said that america doesn't have a spending problem. this is completely at odds with what independent experts tell us and what is perfectly apparent to anybody who is alert. and last week i brought this chart behind me to the floor to illustrate the point. as everyone knows, we're running trillion-dollar annual deficits. what this chart shows is the gap between government spending and revenue just keeps getting wider and wider and wider. so let's take a look at it. the occupant of the chair is relatively new to the senate, but not new to the facts. the green area here represents both historic and projected tax revenue. the blue area here, the dark blue area, as you can see, really kind of flat line flatlit here to 2014, is the new revenue that the president got at the end of the new year as a result of the law. the tax rates sunsetted, expired at midnight on new year's eve. the congress then wisely continued the current tax rates for 99% of americans, made those rates permanent so you wouldn't have another event like new year's
. madam president, the american people are asking when are we going to turn to the spending side of the equation. president obama talked all through the campaign of balance. well, we've had the tax increases. now we're having the debt increases. when are we going to have any new spending cuts? this would at least start in a modest way reasonable spending cuts. thank you, madam president. the presiding officer: would the senator call up his motion. mr. vitter: yes, madam president. i call up the motion to commit. the presiding officer: the clerk will report. the clerk: the senator from louisiana, mr. vitter, moves to commit the bill, h.r. 325, to the -- mr. vitter: madam president, i ask to waive reading of the whole. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. baucus: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from montana. mr. baucus: madam president, we've -- we've essentially already voted on this. this is very similar to the portman amendment which lost by a vote of 54-44. this approach was rejected by the house of representatives when the speaker sent over his deb
to your days, simon. i'm ready right now. >> the two biggest drivers of growth of government spend having been defense and medicare. i think we, if we want to get spending under control, we're going to have to tackle health care costs, which is what barack obama said in his inaugural speech last week and we have to continue bring down defense. if we can do that and raise a little bit of revenue i think we can make significant progress on getting debt under control. melissa: steve, last word. real quick. we don't have time. >> of course health care entitlements are the big problem. simon why did we create a new trillion dollar health care entitlement? that didn't make a lot of sense. we can't afford it. when you talk about negatives for the economy i think obamacare is one of them. >> i will come back and debate that in the future. melissa: thanks to all three of you coming on. hope you come be ba. you're all fantastic. >>> time for the fuel gauge report. mixed economic data from the u.s. and europe led to choppy oil trading futures. it managed to rise for the third straight session, now a
but the privacy invasion is just beginning. how the obama campaign is pushing its agenda with your private information. plus, how can washington ever get a handle on spending if they don't think spending is the problem? >> i think i have set a number of times that deficit reduction is not a goal the capital one cash rewards card gives you 1% cash back on all purchases, plus a 50% annual bonus. and everyone but her likes 50% more cash, but i have an idea. do you want a princess dress? yes. cupcakes? yes. do you want an etch-a-sketch? yes! do you want 50% moreash? no. you got talent. [ male announcer ] the capital one cash rewards card gives you 1% cash back on every purchase plus a 50% annual bonus on the cash you earn. it's the card for people who like more cash. what's in your wallet? i usually say that. making the big romantic gesture. that's powerful. verizon. get a droid razr m by motorola in pink for $49.99. >> all that hard work was worth more than just the election. millions out at the polls in this election. today i'm proud our friends our friends and supporters are launching organ
, it really doesn't have any connection in terms of creating jobs in the short term. obama has made it clear he would like to do more stimulus spending. repu republicans aren't open to that. they control half of -- control the house and democrats control the senate. it remains to be seen what will happen. the deficit is a problem and needs to be dealt with. it is not going to progress the way it is raised. >> for the fourth quarter he slufrpgs in terms of growth. now is the worst possible time to cut spending even further. the economists look at this slijage and say it was due in large parts of federal spending being cut. what is the con sefb tive answer -- conservative answer to that? >> we spent nearly a trillion dollars in the initial stimulus bill in january or february 2009. we have spent hundreds of billions more over the next 3 and a half years to try to stimulate the economy. we have gotten sadly used to this new normal between the gdp of 1 and say 2 percent. that is the status in the united states of america. we have the worst u.s. recovery ever on record in this president. economic
spending. let's reform entitlements. let's get the deficit down. big picture stuff that never really surfaced in the obama administration. >> it absolutely didn't. and again, perhaps that's a reason the council is going away. the recommendations that -- the big picture items that the council recommended were never really adopted by the obama administration, never pursued, despite the fact that these are people the president appointed and had significant business experience. and somebody again that would lend credibility to us as republicans and democrats in congress as a way to come together to get this country's economy moving. in my view, the situation has not changed. in fact, as we saw by the numbers you just reported, the lack of jobs, the slowing of the economy are still here, perhaps getting more evidence that things are going in the wrong direction, not the right direction. and all the more reason to have something to coalesce around the darn partisanship of washington, d.c. and the differences between congress. and i could say every time i say to my democratic colleagues tha
a spending and budget deal we'll have another government shutdown then. president obama is allowing his jobs council to expire. the 2-year-old council including business and labor leaders. ge's jeff immelt chaired it and met with the president four times. the last time more than a year ago. the white house cites visa processing retrofitting government buildings with energy efficient technology and fast track review for infrastructure. the republicans claim the president ignored the group's recommendation, treating it as a nuisance than a vehicle that spurred job creation. back to you. ashley: now it no longer exists. rich edson, thank you so much. appreciate it. tracy: they will need a job. coming up one beer combination leaving regulators with a skunky aftertaste. ashley: yuk. plus is the eurozone destinned to self-destruction? heritage foundation's nile gardiner weighs in ahead. why he says america needs to pay very close tanks. first as we do now every day let's take a look how oil is trading. it was, seemed like it was going to hit the 100 dollar level. down half a percent on the day at
house says president obama will not veto it. the debt ceiling is the limit on how much the feds can borrow. republican leaders were refusing to raise it without an equal amount of spending cuts. but the bill they just passed has a new ultimatum for the house and the senate. no budget, no pay. carl cameron in the d.c. newsroom tonight. how is this supposed to break the gridlock? >> hey, shep. it's basically a two-part deal. the first says by april 15th, both the house and the senate each have to pass a budget that balances in 10 years. should either chamber fail then its members paychecks can't be delayed. they can't stop it constitutionally they have to get paid. the other part suspends enforcement of the federal debt limit until may 19th, at which point it will increase retroactively without any offset in spending cuts. here is how speaker john boehner summed it up today. >> you know, the premise here is pretty simple. it says that there should be no long-term increase in the debt limit until there is a long-term plan to deal with the fiscal crisis that faces our country. >> and no
of it is spending on those of the highest levels spend a smaller percentage of their income to live and have the advantage of a tax system created for this advantage. during the debates with romney and obama, he mentioned that they were going to be just fine because obama was the champion of the koran the middle class and romney is the champion of the upper class. those investors are going to save the country. the point made by obama is that they were going to be just fine. i guess, where the way the tax structure have set up, they can get down to 10% because they can get tax is done because of corporations and the whole ball of wax. the other taxes considered by patrick included a gas tax and a toll increase on the pike. insurance pay the tolls and pay the gap. the rich people and the higher- income people will not be paying this tax at the same percentage. host: let's take a look at some of the details you hinted that. the associated press says he wants to hide to the income-tax from 5.25% up to 6.25% while eliminating itemize deductions. he is calling for reducing the sales tax from 6.25%
battles between president obama and republicans are mostly budget focused. on march 1 one month from this friday sequester cuts kick in. it is $1.2 trillion. those are cuts to military and discretionary spending. paul ryan says don't expect a last minute deal or any deal at all. >> i think the sequester is going to happen because that $1.2 trillion in spending cuts we can't lose those. >> joining me now lynn sweet and david who covers the white house for the washington post. good sunday to both of you. let's start with the claim from paul ryan. $1.2 trillion in cuts said to take effect march 1. paul ryan indicating this time there will be no 11th hour deal. >> it is just a bargain position and it is not going to necessarily unfold that way. there are no absolute right now. it is early in yet another chapter of the on going rangles we have been having. so i would put no more into it. it is a prediction and i don't think either side has anything to gain. remember the virginia economy, a lot of places very dependent on defense and other industries, neither side will look good if they ca
. a boost for the economy without the government spending a dime, getting closer. 53 senators, including nine departments wrote to president obama urging him to approve the pipeline bringing canada's oil to america. a big natural gas company opens books on fracking to the epa. the end result could be a lot more american natural gas production. think about that. jobs, cheap, reliable energy moving forward and a democrat senator pushing for it will join us in minutes. ♪ all right. as i said a moment ago, we'll be joined by one of the democrat senators who signed that letter to president obama urging approval of the keystone pipeline. he will be here ten past ten eastern this morning, this program. to the big board, close to an all-time record high. the dow is now at 13,834 #, up 55 points. to nicole, apple's numbers disappoint, and, boy, is that stock taking a downturn, go. >> oh, big time, down almost 10% right now at $463. out all the people who paid $700 for apple with high hopes of the iphone 5 and apple tv and the next latest product to see it disappoint. >> the soft story of the da
two years should be to deny president obama a second term. but the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill, to end the bailouts, cut spending and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all of those things is to put someone in the white house who won't veto any of these things. >> after that, democrats worried republicans were trying to annihilate the democratic party, in part by trying to destroy unions, the most vivid example of that, wisconsin. the republican governor successfully pushed a bill that stripped collective bargaining rights for most public unions. ohio and michigan followed scott walker's lead with mixed success. and now it seems the tables have turned. now if you believe boehner, the democrats want to annihilate the gop. so the talkback question for you, do you agree with boehner? will obama try to annihilate the republican party? facebook.com/carolcnn, or tweet me @carolcnn. i'll be right back. neutrogena® rapid wrinkle repair has the fastest retinol formula. to visibly reduce fine lines and wri
-building here at home, something that not just candidate obama, but also candidate romney, agreed about. we are looking at unprecedented cuts in spending on national security. we are looking at the prospect of drawing down from afghanistan. we are looking at a lot of changes. not just here in the united states, but in the world. one of the questions i know that we have is whether we are ready for the exchanges. i suspect that most of us believe we are not. tom, make -- maybe you could start as out and talk about the sequestration that paul ryan told us this weekend is going to happen. >> it is a prediction that at this point seems like a certainty, but i would argue it has been a near certainty once beat sequestration provision was written into the budget control act. i will talk a bit about sequestration per se, but i would regard it as a symptom and not the disease itself. the disease itself is erosion to the point of vanishing, almost, of the bipartisan political consensus for military string, for peace through strength, as people used to say. that is really something that over the cours
think the republicans should spend less time complaining about president obama and his intentions and more time to thinking about what they can solve and where they can work with him and where they really can fight and should fight him and really try to do some good for the country by mitigating the damage he is doing. and where they cannot mitigate the damage, they can set a fire say we are confident the public will see the failure of president obama's policies and we will get a real alternative. host: this tweet -- jeb bush of florida has this in the wall street journal this morning on solving the immigration puzzle. jeb bush says there is no line. guest: i would be with him. and i thought that romney's attacks on rick perry and newt gingrich were not fair on immigration. mitt romney was supposed to be the moderate candidate and rick perry was the right-winger. rick perry was the one who was more forward-looking and more liberal on immigration, which would have served the party better. romney by pandering to what he thought or parts of the republican base on immigration. when he
they didn't know. >> it is just the beginning there elements of obama care that have not yet been put into effect. we will spend the next year or two or five or ten allergic what's in this massive piece of legislation. it's going to be like christmas. >> go to ff weekend on twitter and let us know how you feel he about that story. also this story. remember this teacher down in south carolina? he in his classroom there in an effort to show how incredible freedom in this country is, and freedom of speech, ripped an american flag off of the wall in one ever american classments on three different occasions and stomped on it to show his class, he says is an educational exercise that this is freedom of speech. this is why america is free because we are able to express ourselves in this way without being thrown in prison. he was fired for that. now he wants his job back. >> it sounds like, i mean, well, let me get the other side. it sounds like first during this lesson he spoke glowingly of the united states and of the freedoms and privileges we have here. is he not known as anti-american te

, i met a retired autoworker who was spending his newfound r and r time coming into the local ofa office every single day. he knew president obama had fought for him and for so many other hard working americans by rescuing the automobile industry, and he wanted to be sure that he return ored the favor. in every corner of the country from sarasota to milwaukee, from seattle to cincinnati, i met so many truly amazing individuals who were proud to come up to me and say they were casting the first vote of their lives, and it was a vote for president obama. it became clear that for so many people and in so many different ways this election was personal. and it was personal for me too both as a mom raising three kids and as a breast cancer survivor. because we succeeded in reelecting our president, millions of americans across the country will no longer be denied coverage because of their pre-existing conditions.
